NORTH RICHLAND HILLS, Texas -- Police are looking for 14-year-old Ruby Contreras, who has been missing since she didn't come home from school last Wednesday and may be in the company of a dangerous man.
North Richland Hills Police Investigator Keith Bauman said the department has sent the missing girl's information to Austin to initiate an Amber Alert.
On Wednesday, April 24, Contreras didn't return home from North Oaks Middle School in Haltom City. The Contreras family said that this isn't typical behavior for Ruby and there is no reason to believe she has run away from home.
According to North Richland Hills police, it appears Ruby has left the area and is possibly in the company of an older man, Stephan Andrew Cox. The two might be traveling west by bus service.
Contreras is described as a Hispanic female, 4'11", and 95 lbs., last seen wearing a black hoodie and blue jeans.
Cox is described as a 26-year-old Hispanic male, 5'5", 140 lbs.
If you have any information as to the whereabouts of Contreras or Cox, please contact the North Richland Hills Police Department or your local police agency.
